Los Angeles, CA
||16 stories, 227 Units
The transformation of 1010 Wilshire offers streamlined design in a high rise residential environment. Owners have maximum flexibility to make the spaces their own; rather than dividing the units with walls, areas are defined and linked by built-in furniture elements that act as low-height walls, preserving the expansive open plan.
The design of the kitchen and bathing elements and use of rich, elegant materials allows these elements to integrate with the main living space in the loft. In some units bathing elements exist in traditional spaces; in others vanities and bathing tubs are placed in the main loft space.
On the building’s roof deck, residents can gaze out over the city near a dramatic fire/water feature, work quietly among the trees and flowers while enjoying a westward view to the ocean, or host a cocktail party in the bar area under the glow of backlit colored panels.
Engine Co. 28
Built in 1912, it was the most expensive fire station of its time. Now, a City of Los Angeles recognized historic-cultural landmark, it is home to a popular restaurant.
